Hello,
These 2 programs are started after Windows.
Are these 2 programs needed while the PC is running and used for Games?
:thumbsup:
Why this question? I try to stop all uneeded (nice to have) programs/processes running because I run FS9 Flight Simulation 2004 and I need all the available "power" to run this game.
:flowers:
I run XP Pro SP2 on my Abit IT7 MAX2 V2 P4 2.4 oc 2.75 , 1Gb ram, Abit GF4 TI4600 with 2 monitors attached, Dx 9c
:trumpet:
Thanks in advance

Hello Emile and welcome to BC

If you look at the top of this page you will notice the "Startup Database". Type the name of any program you have running on startup into our database and from there you can determine whether you want or need to have it running.

In your case it seems you may have some problems with the first one. Are you sure you have the second one spelled correctly? It helps to include the file extension (such as .exe) to determine the program being started.

Hello Leurgy,

Thanks I did found the Startup Database (how did I miss this?) :thumbsup:

* NvCplDeamon is NvCpl.dll.NvStartup "Intializes the clock and memory settings on nVidia based graphics cards. Enable if you overclock your card "
I do oc my vid card so I keep

* nwiz : "Associated with the newer versions of nVidia graphics cards drivers. Allows you to immensely improve desktop layouts by setting preferences and optimizations. However, this isn't necessary for the operation of your system "
and
"This is a valid program but it is not required to run on startup.

This program is not required to start automatically as you can run it when you need to. It is advised that you disable this program so that it does not take up necessary resources."

I'll try without at startup and report back after

Thanks for assistance
